Lucknow: UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath has warned of strict action against the perpetrators of violence, saying those indulging in anarchy will not be spared.

This is the first official statement from the chief minister since the communal clashes in Kasganj began on republic Day.

“Our government is committed to providing security to each and every citizen. Those indulging in anarchy will not be spared at any cost,” the chief minister said.

The clashes in Kasganj that began on Republic Day between two groups have taken on a communal hue with the death of one person.

More than 118 persons have been arrested following the violence that continued for the fifth day on Tuesday. Several shops, houses and vehicles have been torched in the riots.

UP governor Ram Naik termed the Kasganj violence as a “blot” on the state government and directed strict action against those responsible for the same.
